Kamado Style Fire Roasted Salsa

Sauces + Sides, Vegetable

Hello everyone and thanks for sharing in the salsa making journey with me. As some of you may know this is my second attempt at making salsa on the Big Green Egg. The first post in this series focused on smoked vegetables to make the salsa. This time I went with charred vegetables roasted directly […]

Farmers Market Smoked Salsa

Sauces + Sides

If you are anything like me you want to shop at your local farmer’s market, buy ingredients that speak to you, and go home to make something wonderful. This vision of myself is in conflict with the reality that I often stroll through the market, listen to the Bluegrass band, buy a big bag of kettle […]

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Chicken

Last Friday July 29, 2016 was National Chicken Wing Day! As some of you may remember I participate with several Big Green “Eggsperts” cooking and writing for another blog: Big Green Brotherhood. To celebrate this great food holiday, we were eager to cook our favorite chicken wing recipes last weekend and share them with you. This […]

Grilled Tequila Lime Flank Steak

Beef

Sunday was National Tequila Day so I decided to celebrate the occasion, as I always do, with food! I took to the internet to draw inspiration from a Guy Fieri recipe for this cook. The recipe is easy to make and impressed my family. The balance of the tequila with the lime juice paired perfectly with the flank steak. […]

Kamado Style Peruvian Chicken

Chicken

Last week I was away with the family for a vacation at the Outer Banks, NC. Getting back this weekend I wanted to cook something as I had not cooked on my Big Green Egg in several days. My last post featured my latest toy: The Joetisserie. The chicken for that cook didn’t turn out as good […]

Big Green Egg Grilled Branzino

Seafood

I’m not sure about you, but grilling whole fish has been something of a mystery to me.  As it turns out it isn’t hard to get an outstanding meal grilling whole fish if you pay attention to a few details. My tips for success are: 1) Make sure you oil the outside of the fish; […]

Kamado Lamb Shawarma

Beef

I love street food and especially love finding a food truck that serves good Shawarma. This middle eastern dish is very satisfying and one you can eat on the go as the meat (usually lamb or chicken) is served with grilled vegetables, yogurt sauce, and wrapped in Pita bread. On my home cooking “to do” […]

Smoked Kalua Pork Belly

Pork

I am back with a vengeance after my mini hiatus! To be fair my company was acquired by another, my daughter got married, and it was a long and cold winter. But forget all the personal life stuff… let’s talk food! I have always wanted to cook Pork Belly but felt intimidated. This is not […]

Shrimp Asparagus Stir Fry

Seafood

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of things. Case in point, my daughter is getting married this coming weekend and as a result I have been pretty busy. The planning and prep has taken me away from my cooking and blogging. But hey, I didn’t say life getting in the way […]

Big Green Egg Jerk Chicken

Chicken, Featured

Happy New Year to you all. I hope your holiday break was a good one! Fresh back from our annual trip to Negril Jamaica, I am still reminiscing about the bold and intense flavors of their Jerk style of cooking. As a result, I wanted to recreate the flavors of Jamaica while the taste was still in my […]
